Index Object (Word)

Represents a single index. The Index object is a member of the Indexes collection. The Indexes collection includes all the indexes in the specified document.

Use Indexes(Index), where Index is the index number, to return a single Index object. The index number represents the position of the Index object in the document. The following example updates the first index in the active document.

If ActiveDocument.Indexes.Count >= 1 Then 
 ActiveDocument.Indexes(1).Update 
End If

Use the Add method to create an index and add it to the Indexes collection. The following example creates an index at the end of the active document.

Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Content 
myRange.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd 
ActiveDocument.Indexes.Add Range:=myRange, Type:=wdIndexRunin
